Pretty weak culture which is the result of pretty weak leadership.
Support from management
I was at the company for 3 years and I never had a clear reporting structure or any real management or direction.
C.Y.A. is too dominant to allow for any real teamwork.
Freedom to work independently
The only work you will get done is independently. No one will give you direction because no one actually knows what is going on. Therefore you will ultimately learn how to get things done on your own.
I remember a time when 3 different product teams all started building a document viewer extension for our product and nobody even knew that other teams were building the same thing.
It's not great but it's also not one of the standout weaknesses of Altisource.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Most of the employees are older and honestly is the attitude towards the young that is more of a weakness for Altisource.
Overall compensation for your work
Decent compensation but 100% not worth the money.
Office / Work Environment
Sad. People don't eat lunch together etc.
Not good or bad.
Honestly it was easy to balance work and life at this company because so little got done I had plenty of time for non-work activities.
The company looks bad publicly. Honestly the public demonizes this company more than is fair. They aren't 'evil' they are just incompetant and greedy.
In my 3 years my team was replaced by outsourcing, then brought back on shore because it wasn't working, then contracted out, the outsourced again. The flip flopping by management means that job security is weak.
The work can be what you make it. No one will give you direction or clear evaluation metrics so you have to figure it out on your own.
Inclusive / Diverse
We have Russians, Indians, Americans, Europeans - so cultural diversity is decent. However the company's ability to integrate those cultures into one, unified company culture is severely lacking.
Suggestions for improvement
- Do not attempt to build software with a servicing company's culture.
What I like about the company
They are well funded with plenty of revenue.
What I dislike about the company
They are garbage as creating software and only afloat because everyone else in the industry is also pretty bad at building software. They are held up by lots of money instead of inspired creators.
